Intelligent Risk Taking

Published 2004

'Intelligent Risk Taking' is an experimental short film which fuses actors, moving image, music and poetry together.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jay Purcell, the film is based on a poem by Milton Keynes writer Darren Gray taken from his 2004 UK published anthology 'Delicate Elephant'.

Although never having been released commercially the film was featured on the Seattle based 'Film Pimp' podcast in early 2006 and can also be found around the web on many video portals such as iFilm, GoogleVideo and YouTube.

I am not sure if that was supposed to be funny. The music was good the other production elements were decent with the execption of the visual clarity of the video. The main character in this makes a really bad choice in the end.
